I ve seen this in the field alot of times make sure you actually are getting full 220 to unit.. sometimes these dang breakers look like they are on but they fail to send full power back to unit... it is even happened to me in the field i go to turn power off to a customers unit and when i am ready to turn back on the breaker wont fully reset... check it out if it was working prior to the bresker turned off and you didn't operate on the dryer disconnecting or replacing anything this is your problem...

Circut breaker turned off and turned back on machine will no longer turn on.

Be sure you have 220 volts at the outlet. If you do check voltage on the power cord inside the machine. Be sure the timer is set correct and check the start switch.Does the motor run? If the motor runs and the drum don't turn may be the belt broken or slipped off the pulley. If motor don't run check voltage to motor if you have voltage most likely the motor is bad it can be checked with an ohm meter. Last resort could be timer. Hope some of this helps.

Wont start , The circut breaker tripped, when i restarted it, the dryer worked but not the washer

Hello. The dryer and the washer are on seperate breakers. Check all of the breakers by turning one all the way on, then all the way off, then all the way on again. Do one at a time.

Where is the circuit breaker or fuse on a Kenmore Gas Dryer?

no heat usually means your only getting110 volts into your need the full 220volts to run heaters....with voltage meter you checkwires on the plug OUTLET...or inside back cover REDwire to WHITEwire =110v.........BLACKwire to WHITEwire =110v.....REDwire to BLACKwire =220v. you probably have aBAD 220V. 30 amp circut breaker..or if still using FUSES one is burnt out (In house electric panel) or burnt off RED or BLACKwire in back of dryer.....

most of the time it is the door switch that goes bad or the main fuse on the blower box inside fails,you can also check to make sure the dryer wall vent hole or dryer hole is free and clear,let me know what you find-mike
